Virginia Wesleyan's chapter of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Beta Upsilon, received three awards in March at the 68th Eastern Regional Leadership Conference, including 2013 Outstanding Undergraduate Chapter, First Place ZHOPE Community Service Award, and First Place Scrapbook Presentation. The annual conference, which hosted more than 500 Zeta Phi Beta members from Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and the District of Columbia, is designed to educate, empower, and offer fellowship to sorority members. The event was held March 21-24 at the Founders Inn and Spa in Virginia Beach and carried a theme of “Embracing and Empowering Our Eastern Regional Communities with Health, Wealth, and Confidence.” President of the Chi Omicron Zeta Virginia Beach Chapter and advisor to the College’s Beta Upsilon Chapter, Chanel Alford-Campbell, recognized VWC’s members, commenting: “Jasmine Patterson ’14, Tiah Davis ’15, Marneice Branch ’15, and Dejha Crudup ’15 are truly an exceptional group of young ladies. I'm honored that they have the help and influence of such wonderful administrators, faculty and staff.”
